With a goth glam outfit and a high updo hairstyle, Vanessa Hudgens graced the red carpet to embrace the Met Gala 2022 theme. The hairstyle significantly put emphasis on her sharp features, highlighting her eyes and cheekbones.
To do a high updo, you can comb your hair from front to back ensuring no flyways remain. Bring it all together into one high ponytail and wrap the hair around to form a bun. Use the De-Frizz Smooth Leave-In Cream to prep the hair and Hold It! Hair Spray for a clean finished look. To make this popular hairstyle look more interesting, you can also use an intricate scrunchie to add some sparkle to your hair.
2. Natural Curls with Kaia Gerber
To pay tribute to the hairstyle trends from the 70s and 80s, Kaia Gerber lets her hair down by parting her tresses through a middle partition. As her hair flows naturally, it is accompanied by gentle curls that makes her hair look voluminous and also enhances her overall look.
How can you try this met gala hairstyle?
- Separate your hair into two parts by drawing a comb through the middle of your scalp.
- Brush your hair gently on both sides.
- Take a curling iron to gradually curl your hair up. You can just go at it section by section without maintaining the heat for too long.
- Apply the Hold It! Hair Spray to help your curls stay in place for a few hours.

The micro diffusion spray provides flexible hold to the tresses without adding a powdery effect. It spreads evenly throughout the hair and is gentle owing to its sulphate and paraben free formula. Use it from a distance of 12 inches in an upright position for best results.
